about that. >> well, that's exactly right, martin. mitt romney even on something worth literally, there is footage of him saying these words about -- is now trying to say, well, i didn't really say let it go down. what i meant -- he should just you know, admit that he said it and move on. but here's why michigan is so important. you mentioned this in the intro. this is for mitt romney, if he doesn't do well there, he really loses all credibility as a potential candidate. i mean, his father was a very popular governor. there are a lot of people who would probably vote for him just because of the favorable feelings about his father. you know, this is his home state. if he can't win his home state, how is he going to make an argument to any kind of donor, any kind of voter or supporter that he's going to be able to take on barack obama, particularly again, if you can't win michigan, that makes the map in the general election a lot harder. >> indeed. in his ad, he looks as though he needs a map.
